Lena Dunham, best known as the lead actress and creator of Girls, will write a four-part mini-series for Archie Comics.
The publisher plans to release the four Dunham issues sometime in 2015. In an interview with Comic Book Resources, chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa promised that Dunham’s story will be “really, really funny.”
Dunham had this statement in the press release: “I was an avid Archie collector as a child — conventions, first editions that I kept in plastic sleeves, the whole shebang. It has so much cultural significance but also so much personal significance, and to get to play with these beloved characters is a wild creative opportunity.”
